Discuss Your Worries, Then Don't Dwell on Them

Some people keep their fears bottled up and just soldier on.  Others are so enmeshed in their worries that they can think and speak of little else.  Neither of these extremes is healthy.  Voice your concerns to those you are closest to, because you will feel better opening up, you will feel closer to them and often your problems will seem smaller when you get another person's perspective.  But do not live within your problems as if it is they, not you, who exist.

Get Away from It All

In every life there should be regular moments of awe.  For most of us, our homes and communities may meet our usual needs, but they seldom inspire us.  Take time on a regular basis to put yourself in a completely natural setting.  Leave the city or the suburbs, and see the forest and the trees.

See Beyond You

Be open. Be welcoming. Be the person who wants other people around.  Engage yourself in the lives of others, and you will see great rewards with minimal cost.
